ColorVisor app demonstrated

This is a short video illustrating how colour is no longer a barrier to making the right choice of an item when one is blind.

Having learnt how ColorVisor was developed and how it can help with a range of visual impairments, Jan Blüher illustrated how he first finds the colour coat he wants - goes out and comes back with a bag of peppers. He sets them out and is able to choose the colour he wants for his meal.

Just pause for a moment and think about the impact this app has on Jan Blüher’s life. Has there been any app you have used that has had such an impact on your life?
